It could be difficult sine you have written after it crashed. You can try getdataback from http://www.getdataback.com 
I think there is more information you can provide us that may make it possible to fix your drive. This looks like missing data on your drive. Most blue screens of death and system reboots can be fixed. But when fixed, get your data onto another media is always the best bet. Can you give us the error codes an tell us if you have a blue screen of death.

Also give us your system specs.

Serial number or service tag
Operating system
Motherboard information
Custom build/manufacturer build
pci cards that you have
on board devices you are using.
SCSI, IDE, or SATA drives
Make and model of drives
canbe any hardware component failing; you may try running some tests :
